" Excellent course especially for someone who needs to be pushed outside their comfort zone with respect to public speaking"

Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills

(Two Hours)

It wasn‘t that long ago that many presenters in the business world were delivering presentations to their clients using pre-printed overhead transparencies and quickly fashioned handwritten overhead slides. Back when presenters had to lug around an overhead projector, most slides were limited to one color, were often hard to read and were one nudge away from flying across a conference room.

Fortunately, in the past decade, Microsoft‘s PowerPoint has become the de facto presentation tool in the business world and presentations are now more effective than ever. Most presenters deliver PowerPoint presentations via laptop computers connected to LCD projectors. These PowerPoint presentations are easier to manage, more professional and much more palatable for audience members. Yet, there are those who use PowerPoint who truly haven‘t mastered all of the capabilities of this valuable product. Rather than tapping into its powerful features, some PowerPoint presentations are far from effective and still as bland as old transparency presentations.

Our two-hour Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills training program is designed to equip participants with the ability to tap into the capabilities of PowerPoint when presenting to colleagues, customers, association members or co-workers.

This valuable training program enables those who use PowerPoint to focus on the use of the powerful capabilities of this presentation tool. Rather than focusing on the very basics, our class discusses structure, format, PowerPoint capabilities and other effective techniques that bring life to a presentation. The informative Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills utilizes various modules to key in on multiple aspects of PowerPoint usage including how to effectively communicate with the audience when using slides, how to lay out slides for maximum impact and how multimedia tools can strengthen a presentation.

These valuable PowerPoint presentation skills can be used whether one has to deliver an internal presentation on productivity levels or facilitate a training session to new hires. Attendees practice by building sample PowerPoint slides they would ideally be used within 60-90 days of attending the training class. Discussion sessions, exercises and other effective training activities allow participants to put to use the skills taught in Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills. This approach allows participants to learn by doing so that PowerPoint skills can immediately be used in the workplace or in the field.

Effective PowerPoint Presentation Skills (Two Hours) participants will learn to:

  • Use PowerPoint slides to strengthen presentations and training sessions
  • Learn what common mistakes can turn slides into distractions
  • Effectively lay out slides so as to reinforce the topic being presented
  • Understand how much information is damaging to a message
  • Utilize particular product features to make presentations more effective
  • Use PowerPoint to facilitate presentations and overcome
  • Communicate more effectively when using PowerPoint slides
  • Build individual slides for use following the workshop
  • Structure a presentation to gain maximum effect
